Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

This banana bread is special. It's really more like a cake. Actually, I might throw some cream cheese frosting on this and call it a birthday cake next month.


From Sugar Plum Blog 

2 1/3 cups all purpose flour  
1 teaspoon baking powder 
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1 1/4 cups mashed ripe banana 
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 
1/2 cup granulated sugar 
1/2 cup packed brown sugar 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
2 large eggs 
1/2 cup Nutella 

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. 

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. 
In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together banana, butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until creamy and well combined - about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs until well combined - about 2 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined. Divide 1/2 of of the batter into a medium bowl; stir in Nutella until combined. 

Alternate spoonfuls of batter into loaf pan until all of the batter is used up. Swirl batter gently with a knife (not too much!). Bake 1 hour or until well risen, deep golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into bread comes out with moist crumbs attached. 

I use this glass loaf pan for EVERYTHING.
